Corsica Masters 2012
Compiled by Tabanus
--*--

The 16th Corsica Masters was a knockout tournament with Rapid time control played in Bastia, Corsica, France, 28-31 October 2012 (the final was played in Ajaccio). The field consisted of the top nine players of the Corsica Masters Open (2012) (27-28 October, 9 rounds, 15 min + 3 sec), and seven seeded players (Bacrot, Gharamian, Vachier-Lagrave, Jankovic, Fressinet, Van Wely and Fier). The four rounds had two games each, plus tiebreak games if necessary. Time control: 15 minutes for the whole game, with 3 seconds added per move from move 1. If 1-1, then two Blitz games (3 min + 2 sec), and if still tied, an Armageddon game (this did not happen). The prize fund was 60,000 euros. Chief organizer: Léo Battesti and the Corsica Chess Club. Chief arbiter: Akkhavanh Vilaisarn. Number of games played: 34.

Etienne Bacrot beat Fressinet 2-0 in the final.
